Connect and deliver

Now, more than ever, we are committed to helping arts and cultural organisations and their leaders to change and deliver their organisations. Your response to the COVID-19 crisis is mammoth and we stand both shoulder to shoulder and in humble service to you all.
We are creating tools, resources and working with industry and sector experts to help think with you about we can re-model our organisations, communicate effectively, safeguard futures and continue to work with and for the communities we feel so passionately about. As an essential element of health and wellbeing, self expression and our human community, we know you want to find ways to continue offering opportunities for creativity, art, innovation and connection.

We’re committed to helping you and your organisations navigate these changes, and we want all cultural organisations to access the best support at this time.

We’re focussing our current efforts on the immediate changes and responses you might need to take to help your organisation react, plan and safeguard your futures.
We want to share free resources, offer insights and support that you might find useful and help in any way occurs to you.
We are refining our change creation programmes to fit with current demands, and we will be building and growing new networks of peer support for cultural leaders across the UK. Talk to us to access our free support or to explore ways that our team of colleagues could complement your existing team to help you navigate changes in your organisation, community and nation.
Drop us an email here and we’ll connect with you today to see how we can support you in your unprecedented journey.
